Chef Rui Paula | Awards
DESPERTAR OS SENTIDOS Considerado como uma referência incontornável da cozinha moderna, e distinguido com uma Estrela Michelin, os pratos do Chef Rui Paula revelam a memória das suas origens, preservando sabores, texturas, aromas e cores, em surpreendentes recriações, cheias de originalidade. Natural do Porto, a simplicidade e o sentido de humor são traços que lhe vincam a personalidade. Foram as raízes transmontanas que lhe despertaram o gosto pela cozinha, e as mulheres da família – mãe e avó – inspiraram as bases que o transformariam no profissional que é atualmente: apaixonado, original e surpreendente.
